Services

Workshops, Consultations, Professional Development

The IHA holds workshops that provide valuable assistance to museums, libraries, archives, preservation groups, and others concerned with effective nonprofit operation. We also make on-site visits to member organizations and offer consultations on institutional planning, board development, collections care, and topics tailored to fit their needs. Costs are reasonable and often can be covered by grants.
